The United Postal Trade Unionís Front says the protest will be carried out till June 14.

The Union Spokesperson Chinthaka Bandara said a protest would be staged outside the Colombo Central Mail Exchange at midnight tonight demanding solutions to a number of unresolved issues in the Postal Department.

The union says they are protesting against the government's move to convert the historic buildings of the Nuwara-Eliya, Kandy and Galle post offices into tourism offices and several other management issues.

A union spokesperson said the strike would continue if the government fails to take necessary steps by June 26 midnight.
